ODISHA FC'S FIRST EVER competitive match didn't have a happy ending as they went down to Jamshedpur FC 2-1 in Indian Super League.
The match, played at JRD Tata Sports Complex, saw a sold out crowd greet the Red Miners on their return to action.
Early in the match it was the visiting newcomers who faltered, with Rana Gharami unintentionally playing the ball into their own net. However, just before half-time, Adriane Santana Carbera scored for them to make it even at the break.
The second half was a cagey affair but towards the end of the match Sergio Castel finally got the break-through Jamshedpur FC had been looking for all game and sealed the victory for them.

This win has given a good head start to Jamshedpur FC's campaign, who will continue it when they welcome Hyderabad FC, the other newcomer in ISL, on 29th October. As for Odisha FC, they return to action on 26th October against NorthEast United in another away encounter.
Bhubaneswar will have to wait another month before they get to witness some ISL action, as Odisha FC's first ever home match will take place on 24th November where they will face off with ATK.
